Parenting Time

Naples Parenting Plan Lawyers

Child Custody Law Firm Serving Lee & Collier Counties

Florida law supports children having frequent contact with their parents to develop close and continuing relationships that foster the well being of the child. As a part of child custody orders, parents must reach an agreement on a parenting time plan.

At Family First Legal Group, we understand that parents want to spend as much time with their children as possible. This often creates conflicts when it comes to parents creating a parenting plan. We believe that it is important for both parents to spend adequate time building and nurturing meaningful relationships with their children after divorce. That is why our Naples parenting plan attorneys will aggressively fight for your rights to spend ample time with your child.

Our visitation lawyers know what is at stake when it comes to parenting time. To benefit from our many years of family law experience, call (239) 319-4441 today.

Determining Parenting Plans in Florida

When a couple cannot reach an agreement about a parenting plan, this issue will be decided by the court. The court will make its decision based on a variety of factors, which are used to determine the child’s best interest.

The factors the court will consider include:

  • The moral fitness of the parents
  • The physical and mental health of the parents
  • The history of each parent’s willingness and ability to act on the needs of the child
  • The preference of the child
  • The evidence of any domestic violence or child abuse, abandonment, or neglect
  • The home, school, and community record of the child
  • The involvement of each parent in their child’s life

To evaluate the moral fitness of a parent, the courts will look at how well the parent can contribute to the child's well-being and the parent's influence on the child's moral or ethical growth. For example, a parent who has had trouble with the law, a history of drug abuse, or has been violent towards the child exhibits behaviors that can impair the child's moral and ethical development.
